Message composition is something that is used often.  Shouldn't imp  
tab to the message body after the message subject?  To get to the  
message body you have to hit tab 20 times after you enter the subject  
when using firefox 3 and I can't get it to tab past the subject field  
in Internet Explorer 7.  This is annoying for mouse haters like  
myself.  Perhaps I am doing something wrong?  Is there a way to change  
the tab order?  Is this a browser issue or a imp issue?
